Electric Daisy Carnival, one of the biggest dance music festival around the world, has found its way into China and attracted over ten thousand EDM fans to celebrate. Billboard Radio China managed to catch the rising British duo Snakehips backstage and talked about their new EP and first EDC China experience.
Coming over straight from Coachella, Snakehips (Oliver Lee and James Carter) is definitely hitting it hard on the road and landing performances worldwide. When talking about the most rewarding thing of touring and making music, Snakehips gave all the credits to the fans: "Being in front of so many people who know your songs and like what you did is amazing... and the Asian fans definitely scream a lot more, there’s much more energy in China.”
Besides touring, the British duo also maintains a very busy studio schedule, rolling out hits after hits including their latest EP "Stay Home Tapes", featuring the signature soul and old school hip-hop, "It's all about the vibes." - as they put it. As they talk about how to work as a duo group, James and Oliver also shared one secret of each other: James is a big fan of Zelda and is a master in playing the ocarina, while Oliver’s exceptionally tolerant with alcohol.
Snakehips will come back to Asia in September/October for more tours sharing their EP and new music. They also shared their great condolences for the passing of Avicii, expressing respect for his dedication and music which changed a lot of people's lives.
